Grant Jacoby & Dancers

Performance Date and Time : 
Saturday, July 18 2:00 PM

Grant Jacoby & Dancers is a Boston-based dance company run by artistic director Grant Jacoby. Grounded in human emotion and tactile inspiration and research, Grant Jacoby & Dancers blends the worlds of modern/post-modern dance, jazz, ballet, and musical theater to weave compelling stage stories. A wise man once taught: "when we are filled with so much emotion that we can no longer speak, we sing, and when we are filled with so much emotion that we can no longer sing, we dance." It is this pinnacle of performance in which Grant Jacoby & Dancers strives to reach. Along the way, we explore and invoke happiness, sadness, empathy, apathy, disgust, shock, humor, horror, curiosity, chaos, and/or calm. In practice and performance, Grant Jacoby & Dancers invites you to come along the journey with us, to question what you have known and seen before, and observe how what you have experienced will affect you afterwards. Grant Jacoby & Dancers has presented work throughout New York City, Boston, New England, and France including, but not limited to, La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club, Green Street Studios, The Dance Complex, Les Champs Melisey, Connecticut College, Dance For World Community, Third Life Studios, RAW Boston (2014 Performer of the Year), and The International Festival of Arts & Ideas, as well as residencies at The Dragon's Egg and Green Street Studios.
